Future of Film | Filmmaking, Festivals, And Filtering The Flood

Future of Film | Filmmaking, Festivals, And Filtering The Flood | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The future of film can be found in curation - a new way to mix a professional point of view with the wisdom of your friends, neighbors and trusted sources.

What is Curation? Why does it matter?

Because content creation is going to continue to grow exponentially - film audiences are going to need to find new ways to filter the deluge of new content, and new ways to find and filter have the potential to create new audiences and new economics.

Why Content Curation Is Here to Stay

Why Content Curation Is Here to Stay | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
The debate over the rules of content creation and curation continues to rage. We spoke to some experts for their opinion on the issues surrounding copyright and monetization.

Content aggregation (the automated gathering of links) can be seen on sites like Google News. Overall, this type of aggregation has been seen as a positive thing for content creators and publishers, and up until very recently, it was left to technology. Content creation, meanwhile, was a human effort.

But all that changes with curation — the act of human editors adding their work to the machines that gather, organize and filter content.

How Curation Can Rescue Great Content From The Tyranny Of The Timeline - SVW

How Curation Can Rescue Great Content From The Tyranny Of The Timeline - SVW | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Through curation you can save it from the obscurity of the timeline. You can save it for posterity and for others, or simply for your own uses and pleasures.

As content mills such as Demand Media, (and as others follow suit) continue to churn out a Tsunami of mediocre content -- the deluge is swamping all content. The black waters of the media Tsunami will carry away the good and the bad. And search cannot help.

Curation becomes the only way to rescue great content and keep it safe.

Social Media - From Curation to Storytelling

Social Media - From Curation to Storytelling | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
Social media platforms at their outset allowed us to share information on what’s happening in our daily lives with friends and family. In the past few years, we’ve seen these channels gain credibility as we’ve been granted access to breaking news (Twitter), opinions (blogs) and visual content (YouTube, flickr, Twitpic, etc.) through them.

As we’ve seen in coverage on The New York Times, the media do not hesitate anymore to integrate social media elements into their stories, but social media by itself offers so much more potential for storytelling by its immediacy and its unfiltered authenticity.

Tweet Topic Explorer

Tweet Topic Explorer | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
One problem on a daily basis is to decide for a given Twitter account whether I want to follow it or not. I consider many factors when making the decision such as language of their tweets, frequency, whether they interact on twitter with other people I admire, or if I have some personal or geographic connection with them. But the most critical factor for me is whether they tweet about things that match my interests.

New tool to help see which topics a person tweets about most often. It also shows the other twitter users that are mentioned most frequently in their tweets. I call it the Tweet Topic Explorer. I'm using the recently described Word Cluster Diagrams to show the most frequently used words in their tweets and how they are grouped together.....

The entry field at the lower left lets you explore the tweets for any twitter user.
